    Hi everyone,

    Earlier this week, we unveiled our latest release of Unity Reflect! Here's a quick highlight of what's new:
    • Updated UI/UX - our viewer application has a new look! Everything you loved about the September beta viewer is now available for all. Updates include easier navigation, BIM object selection/filtering/search and sun study options.

    • BIM 360 Support - expanded support to enable AEC designers and VDC/BIM Managers to pull in BIM 360 models into Reflect. This includes support for file formats such as IFC, FBX, Infraworks, Civil 3D and more.

    • 1:1 AR - 2 new modes added to unlock the power of AR for more immersive design review and on-site visualization. No QR marker needed to help launch and anchor a model to the real world.

    • Progressive Instancing - large model support and faster model loading, even on small screens. Don't get stuck waiting for the entire model to load before you can start to navigate and interact with the model. The viewer app prioritizes what's in view.
    For more details check out our blog.

    Congrats to the Reflect Team on the new release!

    I need to ask, are there plans to split up parts of the Reflect Viewer into discrete and independent components?

    Using the Reflect Viewer as a starting point is useful for some scenarios but generally we build our own applications from scratch. Diving into the Reflect Viewer codebase to strip out some functionality is rather time consuming and expensive, which we rather like to avoid specially for a service like Reflect that cost a premium.

    Hey @garrido86,
    The most granular you can get with Reflect on the App side of things is by using the Viewer API directly and the samples that you'll find in the package manager. You'll be able to create your own Reflect App from scratch with this, without having to use our github repo. Most people will choose to use our App as a starting point, but it's really not mandatory!
